Maybe patients should start asking doctors what kind of cars they drive? Do they use their seatbelts all the time? Do they speed? One of my doctors years ago was killed in an accident because he was speeding and not wearing his seat belt. Maybe I should have done more as a patient. Or maybe this guy was going to be a victim of his own actions no matter what anyone did. As a patient it is none of my buisness what kind of car any of my doctors drive or how fast they drive just like it is none of my doctors buisness how many guns if any I own

So, the patient gets depressed, goes to his car in his garage, turns on the engine and proceeds to commit suicide via CO poisoning. Does that means Doctors should talk about running cars in garages?

Antigun, communist trash. Old people don't commit suicide because of the availability of guns, they kill themselves because they're old and dieing.

What do you think of a medical doctor who brainwashes people into becoming hoplophobes and or gun phobes ? What do you think of a medical doctor who spreads mental fear and mental hype, who creates phobias in his patients ? Can you imagine going to your doctor and his prescription actually makes you worse ? That's what this doctor does.

You know why this old man committed suicide ? Because his doctor infected him, that's why.

Oh yea, more people are killed by doctors than by guns. And this doctor is the proof.

Want some good medical advice ? If you value your life, avoid Dr. Frank Dumont.

I can't wait till a doctor looks in a patients eyes and with an understanding voice asks ,
are you planning to walk across any bridges?
